Don't expect this latest short spin-off from the blockbuster animation to make a lot of sense but it is a lot of fun. Why? This time the story is interactive, allowing viewers to touch their screens and decide which direction the action takes as we’re all invited to progress up the ladder at Baby Corp. Alec Baldwin might no longer be voicing Boss Baby himself but listen out for Jumanji star Rhys Darby as hilariously dopey villain Happy Sedengry. … [Read more...] about Netflix: best movies to watch this week – September 2020

Even after awards season, Moonlight’s bounty continues: The movie’s third act famously doesn’t end with a kiss, but its tender beach scene between Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome won Moonlight MTV’s Movie and TV Award for Best Kiss. “It is okay for us young performers, especially us minority performers, to step out of the box,” Jerome said while accepting the award onstage with Sanders. “This award is bigger than Jharrel and I,” Sanders said. “This represents more than a kiss.” Jerome and Sanders exchanged tweets about wanting to win the award after their nomination was announced, and director Barry Jenkins congratulated his stars on their deserved win: … [Read more...] about ’s Beach Scene Correctly Wins MTV’s Award for Best Kiss
This is not to say the two were equals, either on paper or in reality. Sarandos, after all, recruited Holland to Netflix back in the early aughts, having previously been a friendly competitor to her when she worked at the legendary dot-com bubble failure Kozmo. (“At one time, Cindy and I were the only two people in the world buying DVDs for online video services,” Sarandos told me when I interviewed them together at Netflix headquarters a few years ago.)

The Aviator (2004) Several of Leonardo DiCaprio’s best performances subvert or tweak his good looks, encouraging us to see the uglier, messier undercurrents beneath his characters’ appealing surface. Never was that truer than in this Oscar-nominated biopic directed by Martin Scorsese. Leo’s performance as Howard Hughes was hard to fully grasp at the time — he was still shaking off the last vestiges of post-Titanic teen heartthrob — but here was where he really established himself as a major adult actor, bringing to life Hughes’s fiery competitiveness as well as the increasingly erratic behavior that would be his undoing. His Hughes is a towering figure because we know he’s doomed — and, on some level, we sense he does, too — but DiCaprio continually pushes back against the eccentric’s demons, in the process delivering a hypnotic, strangely heroic portrait of ambition in conflict with mental collapse.
